Today Gayle Jackson walked us through his journey of why he chose to become a Christian and why he still believes today. See the notes of the presentation below.
Bill Ibsen led the presentation that concluded the talk on the kings and accountability. We also had Q&A with the panel of mentor couples on what accountability looked like on a day to day basis. Find the link below for a download of Bill's presentation.
Join us next week when Gayle Jackson visits again and share more insight.
Gayle Jackson completed his series on the kings of the Old Testament. This week we were challenged with being accountable to someone else for different areas of our lives and what a healthy accountability relationship looks like. Here are five key points on accountability:
1. It is conferred, not commanded.
2. It does not have to be mutual.
3. The person holding you accountable should be superior to you in the matter of accountability.
4. You must respond with "I will" or "I won't." Take the counsel seriously and respond accordingly.
5. Listen, don't just hear what they have to say.

Gayle Jackson led the second part of the study on Kings of the Old Testament. We discussed being spiritual, involved/ entangled and yoked.
A few key points:
Who do we hope in?
Hope outside of God makes entanglement become yoking.
We were warned about entanglement, but we were commanded about being yoked.

Gayle Jackson spoke to the class on the topic of Kings.
Nine of the 32 kings and one queen were "good"...only 3 finished that way. Are you prepared to make the sacrifice to finish "good?"
1. Read the Word.
2. Learn to fear the coming accountability with God...from the Word
3. Obey the Word.
4. Don't veer from the Word.
5. Be humbled.
The table talk question was "What are the promises from God that you are willing to bet the ranch on?"
